In this episode, Kristina and Karyn talk about:

  • observations made from teaching students from all over the world
  • places where people tend to talk more openly
  • some topics to generally avoid during small talk

The extra mile (useful English vocabulary you'll hear in the podcast):

  • kosher = acceptable; generally approved of or considered to be correct
  • to generalize = say something that seems to be true in most situations or for most people, but that may not be completely true in all cases.
  • off limits = an area that you are not allowed to go
